Good pay and benefits stressful atmosphere

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good pay and benefits and options for flexible schedules. Working with the public during stressful times is a challenge and the different unions could be demanding in their needs.

Good employer, good wage, room to grow

I've been with the SHA for 8 years. My current management are exceptional and ensure a work/life balance. The SHA has good pay and benefits. There is room to grow in many aspects and lots of online learning opportunity.

Fun workplace but stressful at times

Working at SHA was like a roller-coaster ride and it has its ups and downs like any other companies. As an employee I believe that my time at SHA help me grow as an individual specially on multitasking and dealing with different people from different backgrounds . Hardest part of the job was some staff at the hospital I am working are not following the work standards, its there for formality but in reality people just want to come in and earn money. One more thing to add is that there is always a staff shortage almost on every department. I see management keeps on hiring people but in my opinion management should not focus on hiring people but more on retention. Why people are not staying should be addressed instead of just getting a bunch of new hires again and again.


Paid vacations, family leave, stat leave, health benefits and Union


Short staff all the time

not a career a job

somehow the management makes people feel guilty if they don't work for free ...the pay is very low for support staff...people think it's ok but there are union dues and you are not paid for the earned day systems are old and not linked...they only got windows 10 because Microsoft made them...ladies lots of weekends which won't work for daycare


regular staff have to cover for people who don't speak English and it makes them grouchy

No policy enforcement- No support from HR

Managers have little recourse when dealing with conduct issues in the workplace. Harrassment is not uncommon between employees or even employees to management or other out of scope staff. Same employees are abusing the sick banks often leaving us short handed on short notice. We can't always get casuals to come to work to replace on a moment's notice. If you want OT as an employee this is a good place to work. If you want stress and no support as a manager, also a good place to work.

Good employer

Good employer, room to grow. Training opportunities. Local. Parking was decent. Many units to choose from. Variable shifts to work. Food shops and coffee on site. Friendly staff.

Awful workplace

Most of the workers here are absolutely miserable. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving. Sask health doesn’t care about their employees at all.

Lots of overtime available

A good team of people but also a lot of work and short staffing issues. Large floor plan makes for a lot of walking. The permanent schedule is not family friendly but you can work casual and keep 36 hours a week.

Certain people have an overwhelming affect on the work environment

In my experience most of my coworkers have lost their passion for the job due to inflation and no real progressive change where we need it most. My Clients always have and willcome first but the staff needs some major work with Morale


extra grandparents to love


people who make the same wage and do 1/4 of the work and never get in trouble

Do Not Recommend

Moral sucks, backstabbing coworkers, management does not care about your well being. You get hurt they don't care, even if doctors advise not to continue. SHA and Union do not have your back.

Not for me

Great pay and amazing working with people. Politics make it hard to work properly and with good quality . Most nurses are overworked but at times the work is very rewarding .
Was this review helpful?

Not great

Upper management and directors do not care if you can’t provide add care to people due to critical under staffing. Unions can help but it’s a long process. Don’t work here if you have a conscience and actually want to help people




Massive under staffing; major safety concerns

More opportunities

Once inside the system, you can apply for other job vacancies especially if you want to level up your career. Employees are given the first chance to apply before they post it publicly.


Fun people


Casual doesn’t get too many hours in small town

Underpaid and undervalued

The SHA does not have family centred care nor do they value their staff. The healthcare crisis in Canada is very prevalent in Saskatchewan. There is no safe parking for staff. As a nurse you are just another number. The benefits and salary are awful.
